YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1901 Cleveland tops the White Sox, 13 – 1, getting 23 hits. All of them were singles…

1950 I need to get a copy of the newspaper for this one… Jim Martin, a catcher for the Pampa Oilers, is struck by lightning while behind the plate in Abilene. He not only survives, but catches the next day.

1960 The Exploding Scoreboard becomes a part of Comiskey Park.

1961 Warren Spahn fired a no-hitter to top the Giants, 1 – 0. He was 40.

1988 The Orioles set a record for losing – 21 straight – in a loss to the Twins. They haven’t won a game yet for the season…
